From 1st to 14th Feb 2012, Karuizawa will hold “Valentine in Karuizawa” events to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day as part of Karuizawa Winter Festival 2012. I would like to recommend not only couples but also many people to come to Karuizawa and spend a special time. Karuizawa is especially known for its cool and bracing summer, but it is also very beautiful in winter.
Events of “Valentine in Karuizawa” include followings:
- “Love trees”, to which you can bind your love message card, are prepared in Yagasaki Park (5 minutes from Karuizawa Station), Karuizawa Station (JR), and Shinano-Oiwake Station (Shinano Tetsudo Railway).
- Illumination events are held from 17:00 to 21:00 on 1st, 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th Feb.
- Fireworks display is held from 18:00 (the event starts at 17:00) at Yagasaki Park. Small gifts and hot drinks are served. A mini concert is held.
- Love Message Contest is held from 18:20 on 11th Feb at Yagasaki Park.
I hope you will enjoy the winter of Karuizawa!
